I was always partial to the fried ones over steamed. 50c each at high school. Two of them on a cold winter morning was divine.

Fresh dimmies are glorious culinary simplicity. Same as a fresh cinnamon dohnut, piping hot garlic naan straight from the tandoor or freshly baked bread with a good spread of butter. Simple as shit but just amazing.

You can get the classic sports club style dimmies from Woolworths - I wonder if they have them over in Perth?

We used to have them all the time - you put them in bowl with some water, put some glad wrap over them and zap them - BOOM steamed dimmy

They're on the website, so probably. Just because OP hasn't seen a steamed dim sim doesn't mean we don't have them. We do, and always have. He won't have any trouble coming by some.

Probably more of a Fashion Chaps shop food rather than a sporting club food.

Okay but do we have opinions on the chicken ones, the ones which are more round and flat?

South Melbourne Market dim sims are amazing, too. World famous right there.

The Charcoal Chicken shop about 5 mins away from my place sells them, too

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dim_sim

Quote:
The term dim sim dates as far back as 1928,[4] although the modern recipe of the dish most likely was developed in Melbourne's Chinatown in 1945 by entrepreneur William Wing Young (father of TV chef Elizabeth Chong) for his food processing company Wing Lee.[2][3] The larger circular version of the dish is commonly known as a "South Melbourne Dim Sim" due to it originating at South Melbourne Market.
now you know

There are 2 varieties of these now. There's the normal ones which is basically a whole steamed/baked bun with fillings inside that you can't see until you bite into it. Or those that are open. Kinda like a taco but using steamed buns instead of taco shells.

You can get normal ones from any dim sum house. I like Northbridge Chinese Restaurant (that's what they're called) on Roe Street in Northbridge. Or Dragon Chinese Restaurant on Francis Street is good too.

The open ones are a new type. You can find them where hipsters hang out. There's also a little tucked away restaurant that only does dinner behind Old Shang Hai food court call Old Lane Street Eat that does them. They have quite a few variety of it and are very tasty.

While they are slightly different, for this purpose they are close enough to be indistinguishable.
